BLUES BAG 5 RIGHT AT THE DEATH

He’s Big – He’s Bad…It must be Marshall Gadd!

Macclesfield Blues v. Huddersfield, Top v. Bottom…should have been a stroll in the park?  No way. Huddersfield were organised, determined and showed fantastic resolve in belying their League position on Saturday, and The Blues had to wait until the last play of the game to score the all important bonus point try.  A brace of tries for both Matt King & Elliott Brierley plus a conversion from Lewis Barker secured the win and leaves The Blues needing 10 points from 5 games to ensure the League title and gain automatic promotion.  Easy, I hear you say…anything but.  With 2nd placed Sedgley Park next up for The Macc Lads on Saturday, and then local derbies against Chester & Sale (both scrapping to get clear of the drop zone) followed by ambitious Stourbridge, The Blues are going to need all your support to see them across the line.

BRUNCH AND BUS 9th APRIL

This Saturday 9th April is a big day for the Blues, if we beat Sedgley Park and they don’t earn any bonus points then we will win the league.

We are offering all our loyal Blues supporters a chance to be there and involved with the action as for just £18 plus entry you can watch the game, enjoy a full English breakfast and secure your place on our coach to Sedgley Park.

A full English Breakfast will be served at 12.00pm  and our supporters coach will leave at 1.00pm in order to arrive at Sedgley Park in time for kick off at 2.30pm.

We are offering the same deal for the trip to Heywood Road on April 23rd when The Blues take on Sale.  If you are unable to attend the Blues at Sale, then why not take advantage of our arrangement with Macc Town Football Club & get a half price ticket for the Silkmen v. Cheltenham?  Just take your MRUFC membership card to Moss Rose, use Danny Ackerly as reference and take advantage of this offer.

For more information on this event and to secure your place please contact Jonathan on jonathan@maccrugby.co.uk , 07841 114894 or 01625 827899 .
